. CLASS DAY, 

The Class Day exercises were of unusual originality 
and interest this year. After the processional, with the 
floral chain carried by the Freshmen, in which the Seniors 
were escorted by the Juniors to the large tree near the 
bleachers on the campus, Feril Hess delivered the ivy ora- 
tion. 

After the planting of the ivy, the Seniors gave a clever 
imitation of a class meeting. A synopsis of the conversa- 
tion follows: 

Winifred— "Oh, girls, we've just got to have a class 
meeting." 

(Chorus of groans, questions and objections.) 

Lucile — "What's this meeting for, any-way?" 

Winifred — "We've just got to decide what we're go- 
ing to do for Class Day." 

(More groans — then suggestions of a play, and va- 
rious objections.) 

Audrey — "Girls, I got another notice from Clark 
Agency to-day." 

(Is squelched by the president for her irrelevant re- 
mark.) 

Irene — "I move we have a conventional Class Day." 

(More objections, Effie thinks they are too sleepy- 
like.) 

Helena — "I move we don't have a conventional 
Class Day." 

(No voting.) 

Irene — -"I'm just killed." 

Feril — "I've just got to hurry up and get ready for 
that tennis game." (And this remark is repeated at very 

Page Three 



(Rje College Greeting* 



frequent intervals, rivaled only by Helena's "I want to 
see that basketball game.") 

Audrey (finally getting an inspiration)— "I have an 
idea. Let's have a will, prophecy, poem, history — " 

Helen — "What's that but a conventional Class Day? " 

Audrey — "Oh, we'll make it different and interesting, 
we're so original, you know." 

Louise — "Well, how will this do for a poem? " 

(Proceeds to read the Class Poem which she has writ- 
ten apparently on the spur of the moment.) 

Chorus — "That's fine." "Pretty good." "It will 
do when you've worked it over." 

Mary Louise — "Let me do the will. Just listen to 
the things we have to dispose of: 

Our dignity — We'll give that to the Juniors— that is 
all we don't need to teach next year. 

Our Matanzas trip to the Juniors. 

Our "Pep" to the Sophs— tho' they really don't need 
much more. 

Julius Caesar — Recommended to the Freshmen. 

(Etc., ad infinitum. Space forbids mentioning all the 
good things the Seniors had to give away.) 

Helen agrees to do the History provided she has help, 
so the girls all mention the "really big things" the Seniors 
have done: 

The entrance into chapel as Freshmen — balloons and 
all; "Julius Caesar" as Sophs; "Illiwoco" as Juniors, also 
the hanging of the Shield, parties, picnics, and dinners too 
numerous to mention — but especially the Junior-Senior 
dinner at Colonial Inn, and the Senior-Junior reception, 
"Men or no men? Trains or no trains?" 

Someone rejoices that the Seniors had Miss Anderson 
for class officer, "except for a little while this spring." 
The general public, perhaps, did not understand until Dr. 
Marker w;\- kind enough to explain on Commencement 
thai there w& a house of quarantine, by the way, 
etc. (Board of Censorship forbids us to say more.)

^S^ J^ 

Helen D.- — "Oh, I want to give the prophecy. I'll 
tell all your fortunes. Once I had a correspondence 
course in palmistry, and I'll read your palms." 

No one can wait until Class Day so she proceeds to 
tell: 

Feril that she is to be an authoress, outclassing Myrtle 
Reed by her marvelous production 'The Superwoman." 
Effie, that she is to be wrecked on a lotus island where 
she can sleep and sleep and sleep. 

Winifred, that s«he is to go into Y. VV. C. A. work. 
Josephine, that she is going to star as a moving pic- 
ture actress. 

Mary Louise— somehow — is to be connected with a 
farm in Missouri (none but the initiated quite under- 
stand.) 

(Just here Lucile gets the giggles, as usual, and her 
prophecy is that she will die of hysterics.) 

Fortunes are interrupted by the entrance of Margaret 
Goldsmith, who, we understand, has a habit of attending 
Senior class meetings. This time she brings a box of gifts 
from the Juniors — hits according to the result of the 
Senior voting contest: 

Beads to Irene — "the best dresser." 
"Kisses" to Mary Louise — "the most lovable." 
Paint to Helen D. — "the most beautiful." 
Spectacles to Helena — "the most respected." 
A ball to Feril — "the most all-round college girl." 
Scissors to Audrey — "the wittiest." 
A fan to Josephine — "the most graceful." 
A "Billikin" to Effie — "the most agreeable." 
A box of "dates" to Winifred— "the most popular." 
A pencil and pad to Louise — "the most original." 
Chewing gum to Lucile — "the biggest talker." 
The Senior statistics that Lucile had averaged up 
showed the average age 22 1-2 years, average height 
5 ft. 5 in., average weight 109, waist measure 25 (My! 
what a waste!), shoe size 4, glove size 6 1-2; tallest,

Feril; shortest, Effie ; oldest, Mary Louise; youngest, 
Louise, etc. (We didn't learn who was the smartest; 
we suppose that it would be hard to tell in a class of such 
shining lights.) 

The Conventional Class Day having thus been 
planned, the girls decide to practice the class song before 
the meeting adjourns. Then, in a few words, the presi- 
dent, Winifred Burmeister, presented the 191 5 banner 
and colors to the class of 1919, and the response was 
made by Lena Johnson, president of the class. 

The whole enjoyable occasion was fittingly closed by 
the singing of the college song — and the arrival of the 
Class Day programs — "Better late than never." 

CLASS POEM. 

She stood at the door of her college 

As it closed itself slowly behind her. 

Before, stretched the years of her life, 

To a point beyond which she could see, 

But down shone a light brightening all the way 

It was limitless possibility. 

For the years of her school life were varied, 

They were filled with hard work, play and fun, 

And from each she had grasped the full value 

Which e'er rewards duty well done. 

So now she is facing the future 

Willi a heart not weighed down by the past, 

No thoughts of shirked duty recall her, 

Nor shadows across her way cast. 

The future for her holds no terrors, 

Though for most it seems dark and unsure. 

For on all the road she has travelled, 

She's been making this light bright and pure. 

You see, she has solved the great secret, 

She has learned that by meeting the present, 

Each hour as it yields to the next,

The future is ever receding, 

And all tasks become possible now. 

Do you know her, this girl of the college? 

Four years she has lived in your midst. 

If you know hot who's gained all this knowledge, 

We'll tell you — 'tis Nineteen Fifteen! 

COMMENCEMENT WEEK. 

Commencement activities began before examinations 
were entirely past. A class of six graduated from the 
Academy on Friday evening, May 28th. The program 
of essays, piano solos and a reading was of great interest. 

On Saturday the Art Exhibit was opened. The cen- 
tral feature of Saturday, however, was the staging of 
Alfred Noyes' "Sherwood" by the Dramatic Club. This, 
the first play given before the public by an organization 
from the entire school, was a great success. Because of 
inclement weather it could not be given on the campus 
as planned, but the effect as carried out on the stage was 
splendid. 

The baccalaureate sermon was preached at Grace 
church on Sunday morning, May 20th, by the Reverend 
Thomas Ewing, D. D., of Springfield. He spoke of the 
necessity of building the christian character on the solfd 
foundation of Jesus Christ, the only absolute man. 

Monday was a busy day. Class Day in the morning, 
alumnae and trustee meetings and society reunions in 
the afternoon, the alumnae dinner at six p. m., and an 
excellent concert by the College of Music in the evening 
filled the time so completely that surely no one found it 
monotonous here. 

The commencement address was delivered on Tues- 
day morning by the Rev. C. B. Spencer, D. D., editor of 
the Central Christian Advocate, of Kansas City. His 
address was based on the temptation of Jesus Christ in 
the wilderness to turn stones into bread. The episode 
was divided into three parts showing us that the most

menial labor is divine, that man to be man and not beast 
must catch visions of other things than those material 
factions at hand, and that it is not only true that man 
cannot live by bread alone but that these other things are 
the words which proceed from the mouth of God. Dr. 
Spencer in his summary said that toil being divine and 
working with a broader vision of God meant only one 
thing and that — Service.

SHERWOOD. 

One of the most enjoyable events that took place dur- 
ing Commencement week at the Illinois Woman's College 
was the play "Sherwood," written by Alfred Noyes. The 
play was given under the very able direction of Miss 
Gleckler, assisted by Miss Shaw. Miss Gleckler's great 
interest and unflagging efforts did much to make the play 
successful. Although originally planned as an outdoor 
play the change made necessary by the rainy weather 
proved not at all disastrous to the play, but only showed 
more clearly the inventive genius of those planning it, 
who transformed the auditorium of Music Hall into a for- 
est fit for a Robin Hood and his followers. 

Robin Hood, the leading part, was taken by Miss 
Alma Harmel in a way that proved a delight to the au- 
dience and reflected unusual credit on both Miss Harmel 
and the department she represented. 

Little John and Friar Tuck, his faithful followers and 
devoted friends, were played by Bertha Weber and Mary 
Harrison. Both Miss Weber and Miss Harrison threw 
themselves spiritedly into their parts and the effect was 
one of great sincerity. Marceline Armstrong in her rep- 
resentation of Much, the miller's son, deserves great cred- 
it. Her impersonation was very good. Feril Hess, as 
Prince John, did some very clever acting. Alma Weber, 
Lucile Reinbach, Mary Louise Powell and Vivian New- 
man did excellent work in their parts. The closing songs 
of Miss Weber were very effective endings in two acts. 
A very difficult part and one taken exceptionally well was 
that of Queen Elinor, played by Miss Mary Balridge. 
Irene Crum made a very beautiful Maid Marian and show- 
ed good character work. Shadow-of-a-Leaf, the fool in 
the play, was regarded by everyone as one of the most in- 
teresting characters of the whole play. Ima Berryman 
played this part with great delicacy and sincerity of feel- 
ing. Much of the scenic effect was achieved by the fair- 
ies who in fairy garb and with flowing hair made a de-

lightful contrast to the dark green and brown suits of the 
foresters. The fairies were trained in their dancing steps 
by Miss Louise Robinson. 

The results of the election of the Dramatic Club are 
as follows: 

President — Corinne Hughes. 
Vice-president — Anne Floreth. 
Secretary — Marie Towle. 
Treasurer — Margaret F. Coultas. 
Play Committee — Alma T. Harmel. 



SONG CONTEST. 

Several weeks ago the Faculty announced a contest 
for college songs and music. The hearty response which 
followed gave evidence of much interest and promised an 
increase in the list of our own original songs. Winifred 
Robinson's song was given first place, and Margaret 
Wilder was the winner in the contest for music. They 
were each presented with a dainty gold friendship circlet 
engraved with Illinois Woman's College, 1915, on the 
face and name and reason for award on the back of the 
pin. The pins themselves are lovely, and coupled with 
the fact that they had been won by doing something for 
their Alma Mater, the girls have more than sufficient rea- 
son to be proud. 

We have printed some of the songs which were writ- 
ten in hope that they may find a place among our original 
songs. Many others for various occasions should be 
added year after year until wc can publish a book of songs 
all our very own.

Bring mem'ries thickly crowding 
That will deepest pain assuage. 

From thee comes inspiration 
To carry joy and pain; 

To thee we lift glad voices 
And sing to thee again. 



F. Hess, '15. 

How dear to us all are the memories 
That tell of the years gone by, 
When our College was but a Female School, 
Where young ladies were hushed and shy. 

How near to us all are the present days, 
We all of us can't but feel, 
For we are the College while we are here 
And we're making it what we will. 

Here s to the future that we can help build 
By loyalty to our College, 
Here's to the summit that we must attain 
Through Faith and Service and Knowledge.

AN EVENING CAMPUS SONG. 

Now the twilight softly lurking, 
Lights with splendor Harker Hall. 
Now the birds are softly chirping 
Bringing peace as shadows fall. 
Now with love our whole hearts giving, 
Worship we our College name, 
In a prayer for daily living 
That will win our College fame. 

Dark and tall the elm trees stand, 
Stretching their protecting arm 
To each of our united band, 
To keep us safe from every harm.

Softly let us sing our anthem, 
Sing our Alma Mater's praise, 
Oh, how reverently we chant them 
As our twilight songs we r&ise. 

Oh, blessings on thee! College dear, 
As evening shadows softly fall, 
Help us anew thy voice to hear, 
Help us to come at thy dear call. 
We bless thee now for all thy power, 
For knowledge, faith and service free. 
Renew our ties this evening hour, 
Make of us one, we pray, thru thee.

ALMA MATER. 

In a quaint old fashioned city 
Where the elms o'er spread the way, 
Stands an old and stately building, 
To which our thoughts e'er stray. 
Born of prayers and hopes and labor, 
Kept by noble sacrifice, 
History tells of many triumphs, 
Shall we let all this suffice? 
Never! Let us up and doing, 
Sing our Alma Mater s praise, 
Work, as did the founders, 
'Till her name to heaven we raise. 
11. — As the days go speeding onward, 
We shall sing and cheer her name; 
Greet the College of the present, 
How her old historic walls 
Give us higher inspiration 
When our paths turn from her halls. 
Then the College of the future 
Only dreamers prophecy, 
We, her ever loyal daughters, 
On her mother love rely.

MAY DAY. 

The annual May Festival occurred on the campus 
Monday afternoon, May 10th. A pageant, which was a 
variation from our regular May dances, was given show- 
ing the spirit of the school. The success of the program 
was due largely to the efforts of Dorothy Stevens, the 
May Day chairman; the committees on arrangements and 
program, and Miss Louise Robinson, the faculty advisor. 
Georgia Humberd, LaVina Jones and Louise Harries 
wrote the pageant. The outline is given in brief: 

Through the bright spring sunshine Father Time slow- 
ly advances. Accompanied by the four Seasons, he as- 
cends the throne. Scarcely are he and his companions 
seated when his twelve lovely daughters, the Hours, come 
forward and dance before him. Hand in hand the Hours, 
still dancing, eagerly urge Father Time to choose from 
among them a Queen of the May. Bewildered by the 
beauty of all, Father Time cannot choose and leaves the 
decision to Fate. Silver balls of sand are dropped from 
his hour glass, one indicating the Queen. 

Helen McGhee, whom Fate has chosen in this way, 
kneels and is crowned by Nineteen-Fifteen. Her less for- 
tunate sisters rejoice with her and greet her. As the 
Queen arises and ascends the throne, a glorious vision 
clad in robes of blue and yellow advances down the path. 
Flowers cluster about her and all rejoice at her presence, 
for she is the Spirit of 1. W. C. Following close behind 
Pep, a jolly band of sprites gaily trips along. Slowly and 
with a sweet dignity, Alma Mater advances to the throne. 
Sending a messenger for her attendant virtues, Alma Ma- 
ter addresses all. Knowledge enters with firm tread. 
Faith follows, pointing toward higher things. Service 
appears, strong in things achieved and yet to be. In 
breathless silence they stand before the assembly. The 
Spirit of I. W. G. is to choose from them the one who 
will be most helpful to her, but she cannot choose. This 

Page Sixteen 



Wfie College Greeting* 



decision is for Alma Mater alone. The stately figure 
slowly arises while all eagerly await her words. 
In Unity alone lies Strength, 
Wise and pure and helpful will ye be, 
Using the gifts. I have bestowed on thee. 
All ye seek, these gifts will help you find, 
This, my decision, now you know my mind. 
No one of them is greatest, each is great, 
But working with another finds its weight, 
So, Knowledge, Faith, and Service, let it be 
And Pep must help and with the rest agree. 
And now, my children, follow, follow me. 
Alma Mater leads them forward singing the college

At a recent election Grace Reavis was made president 
for the coming year. Helen Pawson, vice-president; Joy 
Webb, secretary, and Helen Ost, treasurer, were the other 
officers elected. 

After an interesting series of preliminaries, Miss Esther 
Fowler won the tennis tournament. Pins and the basket 
ball trophies were awarded at the last chapel of the year. 

We were pleased to learn that Ruth Want was given 
honorable mention in the essay contest of the Methodist 
Temperance Society. Contestants from many other col- 
leges were entered and it reflects credit upon Miss Want's 
work and the Illinois Woman's College that she received 
mention in the decision of the judges.

EDITORIAL. 

The last editorial of the year! No longer may I, as 
a student, put into print my ideas of what and how the 
college should be. Freshmen may come and Seniors 
may go, but the college goes on forever. Although the 
last things for the Seniors are sad in many ways, is it not 
glorious that the college does go on? We should be glad 
to have done our part if in any way we have helped the 
college to grow toward bigger things. 

However, the fact that we are going beyond the col- 
lege walls does not end our efforts for a larger growth 
of the college. The widened influence which we may 
have, has only just begun. Wherever we may go, girls 
will always be found who will be interested and whom we 
should interest. If we keep in very close touch with all the 
activities of the school through the Greetings and frequent 
visits, we will be more efficient agents. An increasing 
number of such agents among the alumnae and former 
students will mean more for dear old I. W. C. than we 
can estimate. Let us begin now. 

As an editor, the year's work has been a happy one 
and I wish my successor all the pleasure of achievements 
for the coming year. 



STUDENTS' CONFERENCE AT ITHACA, N, Y. 

'I he World Peace Foundation will conduct a confer- 
ence for students at Cornell University June 15-30, 191 5. 
Such an announcement is of vital interest to all college

people, for the conference is the first of its kind ever held 
and the suggested program is prophetic of great interest. 
Its purpose is "the training of students who hope to be- 
come leaders in the development of a more rational sys- 
tem of international relations for the future." There are 
to be short courses *in the fundamentals of International 
Law and in the theory of International Trade led by ex- 
perts such as G. Towes Dickinson of Cambridge Univer- 
sity, England, and Norman Angell. Typical subjects for 
discussion are "The Problems of a World Court ;" "The 
Increase of American Armaments;" "Can the Golden Rule 
Be Applied as a Practical Foreign Policy? " 

GREETINGS BREAKFAST. 

The second annual Greetings Breakfast was held at 
the Peacock Inn on Tuesday, May 11. According to the 
new constitution adopted last year, the outgoing and in- 
coming staffs met for a social and business hour. We 
believe that the Greetings has established a precedent in 
this annual meeting which might well be followed by all 
other organizations. From a discussion of the past many 
new ideas and improvements arise. The new officers find 
themselves in the midst of activities before the old have 
left and feel that they have a better understanding of the 
situations before they are thrown entirely on their own 
resources. The members of the new staff are: 

Editor — Ruth Want. 

Associate Editor — Alma Harmel. 

Junior Assistant Editor — Marie Louise Witbeck. 

Sophomore Assistant Editor — Vivian Keplinger. 

Business Manager — Ruth Taylor. 

Art Editor — Ruth Patton. 

Junior Assistant Business Manager — Phyllis Wil- 
kinson. 

Sophomore Assistant Business Manager — Margaret 
Slatten.

Wyt College (greeting* 



The outgoing staff wishes them a successful year, one 
which will yield a better paper than this. We know that 
our school is growing and we confidently anticipate a pro- 
gressive paper which will be a vital factor in its growth.

talk by the new president, Dr. Harker called the presi- 
dents of all college organizations — the Y. W. C. A., the 
Athletic Association, and the editor of the Greetings — 
upon the platform and gave them, together with the offi- 
cers of the Student Association, an address upon their new 
duties. He also urged every girl not to lose grip on her 
realization of individual responsibility for her organiza- 
tion. 

On May 24th, Dr. and Mrs. Harker and Miss Mothers- 
head gave a very delightful breakfast to the old and new 
officers of the Student Association, the faculty committee, 
the presidents of the Y. W. C. A. and the Athletic Asso- 
ciation, and the editor of the Greetings. Plans for the 
next year and the inter-relationship of the various organi- 
zations were discussed informally and many helpful sug- 
gestions made to the incoming officers. 



Y. W. C. A. 

On the 2 3rd of May we had our last regular service. 
The meeting was entirely in the hands of the Seniors and 
was enjoyed by all. Helena Munson led on the subject 
"Responsibilities of College Women," after which several 
members of the class responded. Miss Ima Berryman 
sang 'The Home Land" in her pleasing manner. 

Our annual Y. VV. C. A. anniversary service was held 
in Centenary church May 30. Dr. Ewing spoke to the 
Association in the most pleasing and helpful manner. 

The cabinet held a breakfast picnic at Nichols' Park, 
May 12.

HOME ECONOMICS CLUB. 

The last meeting of the Home Economics Club was 
held May 6th. A picnic on the campus had been planned 
for the evening but rain came just in time to spoil our 
outdoor picnic so it was necessary to have it in the Do- 
mestic Science kitchen. In spite of the rain out of doors, 
all had a lovely time and much enthusiasm was shown in 
regard to plans for the club next year. 

The officers elected for next year are:

BELLES LETTRES. 

Never did "Dear old Belles Lettres, we hail thee to- 
day" sound so sweet to us as when we sang it at our last 
meeting of the year — the Senior meeting. As we have 
been studying the different foreign lands, the Seniors 
gave us a glimpse into the "Land of the Golden Shield." 

Page Twenty- three

We were delighted to take Joye Webb into that land,

mencement week.

THETA SIGMA NOTES. 

The last month has been a busy and a happy month 
for the Theta Sigma girls. Several of the old girls — 
Ethel Kloethe, Hazel Hamilton, Mary Violett and Louise 
Strong — were back for May Day. Besides the grils, we 
enjoyed having several of the mothers with us — Mes- 
damesRishel, Allen, Franken and Robb. 

We had a very informal little party at Betty Merrill's 
the evening of May 10th in honor of Helen McGhee. 
Mary Violett and Ethel Kloethe contributed greatly to the 
enjoyment of the evening by their numerous vocal and 
instrumental selections. It is needless to say that we had 
a good time.

Our annual picnic was Monday, May 30th, at Nich- 
ols' Park. We spent most of our time on the water but 
were on land long enough to eat and have a track meet, 
Although there were no records broken, we had as much 
fun as if such had been the case. 

One evening when we went into our Hall we found a 
half dozen straight chairs which matched our furniture. 
They were the gift of the new girls and were very much 
appreciated by the society. 

Our officers for the year 1915-16 are as follows: 

President — Mary Balridge. 

Vice-President — Anne Floreth. 

Recording Secretary— Ila Allen. 

Corresponding Secretary — May Bigger.

LAMBDA NOTES. 

The retiring president and vice-president, Marie Louise 
Witbeck and Helen DeWitt, entertained at a charming 
breakfast for the Lambda girls at the Colonial Inn, May 
24th. There was a delightful homeiness about the entire 
affair, particularly as we were served out on the porch by 
our hostesses themselves. 

Our last meeting which was to have been a picnic fi- 
nally turned into an informal luncheon in the Hall on ac- 
count of the rain. Every Lambda will long remember this, 
our final meeting.

TUSCOLA PICNIC, JUNE 23RD. 

All former students as well as those now attending our 
college are most cordially invited to attend the I. W .C. 
picnic at Tuscola, Illinois, to be given on June 2 3rd. 
This picnic was held last year for the first time and we ex- 
pect to make it an annual affair. We are very anxious 
for a large number to come this year. No matter how 
long you may have been out of school, and whether you 
know the hostess or not, "headquarters" will be at the 
home of Letta Irwin on 51 E. Daggy St., where a limited 
number may be kept over night if necessary. All who 
expect to come are requested to notify Miss Irwin not 
less than two days beforehand. Please bring something 
for the dinner which will be held at Patterson Springs. 
Conveyances will leave town at ten o'clock. In case you 
cannot reach Tuscola by that time, please come the day 
before. Now we do hope all I. W. C. girls who live within 
fifty miles, anyhow, will plan to come to this big informal 
reunion. We know of twenty girls already that expect 
to come. Won't YOU come, too? Please pass the word 
along or end in names of those who might come to 
Letta Irwin. There will be no expenses attached to this 
except a small amount for conveyances. Of the faculty, 
we expect Miss Mary Anderson and perhaps Miss John- 
tun and President Marker.

REUNION OF CLASS OF 1905 

Ten years! Those words in the minds of thirty-six 
alumnae of our beloved College have for the past few 
months sent the thoughts tumbling over each other, back 
to that day in 1905 when they carried away from their 
newly acquired Alma Mater, their education securely 
tied with the gold and blue. When ten members of this 
class came together on Monday, the 31st, at the Peacock 
Inn for a breakfast in honor of the tenth anniversary it 
seemed but a day since we claimed all Senior honors. 
Miss Neville, our class officer, Miss Cowgill and Miss An- 
derson were our special guests, adding much to the joy of 
the occasion. In the absence of our class prophet, Gol- 
den Berryman read the phophecy, and as each girl's name 
was read she responded, telling wherein she had not lived 
up to that which was expected of her. If the member 
was not present, those who knew of her whereabouts told 
all they knew of her. It was altogether an occasion full 
of delight Those present pledged themselves to work 
for a big reunion in six years at the seventy-fifth college 
anniversary, and it is to be hoped that many more may 
plan to return at that time. The ten present were Golden 
Berryman, Edna Lumsden, Besse Mather Goebel, Susan 
Rebhan, Alice Wadsworth, Nelle Taylor, Edna Starckey 
Crist, Minnie Huckeby, Ewert Jeanette Scott, and Carrie 
Luken Moeller. 

Tuesday afternoon Bess Mathers Goebel entertained 
the girls of the class of '05, with Miss Neville, Miss Cow- 
gill and Miss Anderson, at an informal tea at her pretty 
home in Duncan Place. This proved to be a most de- 
lightful close for the home-coming of '05.

ANNUAL MEETING OF ALUMNAE. 

The annual meeting of the Alumnae Association of 
the college was held in the chapel Monday afternoon, 
May 31st. Mrs. Luella Cox Buckthorpe, '94, presided, 
and Mrs. Alice Briggs Hopper, '04, served as recorder. 
A piano solo, McDowell's "Polonaise," by Miss Jessie 
Whorton, '97, opened the program. Miss Burnett, '01, 
spoke the words of welcome to the class of 1915 and re- 
sponse was made by Miss Helena Munson, who pledged 
the loyal devotion of the class to their Alma Mater. 

The treasurer's reports were given by Mrs. Emily 
Allen Fay, '13, and Mrs. Jennie Kinnman Ward, '65, the 
latter reporting that for the memorial scholarships a sum 
of over $16,000 has already been received which is nearly 
half of the $35,000 to be raised. 

Mrs. Lambert, 73, alumnae field secretary, gave re- 
ports of the various meetings held by Illinois Woman's 
College societies in Los Angeles, Chicago, St. Louis, Dan- 
ville, Champaign, Springfield and Decatur. She urged 
the need of more general co-operation on the part of the 
alumnae and former students of the college. 

Miss Louise Gates, '12, gave the annalists report with 
tender mention of those who have entered into rest, and 
included many interesting bits of news regarding weddings 
and other important events in the lives of Woman's Col- 
lege girls. 

Mrs. Rowe gave a brief report of the trustee's meeting 
after which came the election of officers for next year, 
which resulted as follows: 

President — Mrs. Illilio McCutcheon Thompson, '10. 

First Vice-President — Mi Nell Yates Taylor. 

Second Vice-President — Mrs. Elizabeth Mathers Goe- 

bel,'oS. 

Third Vice-President — Mrs. Alice Abbot MacCarty, 

1900.

Recorder — Mrs, Nellie Miller Blackburn, '06. 

Treasurer— Mrs. Emily Allen Fay,'13. 

Alumnae Trustees — Mrs. Manitta Mathers Rowe,75; 
Mrs. Anna Reavis Gist, '84. 

After the meeting the alumnae attended the recep- 
tions given by the various societies. 

Among the alumnae there is one special class that 
feels a particularly close bond of fellowship — that is the 
degree graduates. At a charming little afternoon "coffee" 
given by Miss Anderson and the present Senior class, dur- 
ing commencement week, all of the alumnae possessing 
the Bachelor's Degree that could be present talked over 
plans for a more definite service to their Alma Mater. 
While they expect to enter enthusiastically into the regular 
Alumnae Association, they will also have this other unit 
from which to work. There are now forty-two degree 
girls, a number of which we may justly be proud when 
we remember that the college has granted degrees only 
since 1909. In that year there were two; in 1910, three; 
1911, five; 1912, six; 1913, eight; 1914, seven; 1915, 
eleven, and a class of twenty is expected of 1916. Miss 
Jeanette Powell of Jacksonville, was made general sec- 
retary, and it was planned to hold a luncheon next com- 
mencement. It is expected that then some definite plans 
will be made for future work.
